The Arabidopsis protein COP1, encoded by the constitutive photomorphogenic locus 1, is an essential regulatory molecule that plays a role in the repression of photomorphogenic development in darkness and in the ability of light-grown plants to respond to photoperiod, end-of-day far-red treatment, and ratio of red/far-red light. The COP1 protein contains(More)
Conditionally lethal mutant alleles of the FUSCA3 (FUS3) gene of Arabidopsis thaliana are specifically defective in the gene expression program responsible for seed maturation. FUS3 was isolated by map-based cloning and expression of the FUS3 cDNA resulted in complementation of the Fus3- phenotype. In the predicted FUS3 gene product, a continuous stretch of(More)
Previous studies have shown that recessive mutations at the Arabidopsis ABSCISIC ACID-INSENSITIVE3 (ABI3), FUSCA3 (FUS3), and LEAFY COTYLEDON1 (LEC1) loci lead to various abnormalities during mid-embryogenesis and late embryogenesis. In this study, we investigated whether these loci act in independent regulatory pathways or interact in controlling certain(More)
Two genetic screens, one for mutations resulting in photomorphogenic development in darkness and the other for mutants with fusca phenotype, have thus far identified six pleiotropic Arabidopsis COP/DET/FUS genes. Here, we characterized representative mutants that define four additional pleiotropic photomorphogenic loci and a null mutant allele of the(More)
SystemC has been widely accepted for the description of electronic systems. An essential advantage of a SystemC description is the possibility of a built-in compiled-code simulation. Beyond the functional simulation for validation of a hardware design, there are additional requirements for an advanced simulation of faults in order to analyze the system(More)
Two novel MYB genes (ATMYBR1 and ATMYBR2) were isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana. Binding to a conserved MYB recognition sequence is demonstrated for the ATMYBR1 protein. The expression of both genes is affected by the fus3, lec1 and abi3 mutations causing pleiotropic defects during late embryogenesis and seed maturation including the loss of dormancy and(More)
The genetic basis of multiple phenotypic alterations was studied in cell-engineered cybrids Nicotiana tabacum (+ Hyoscyamus niger) combining the nuclear genome of N. tabacum, plastome of H. niger and recombinant mitochondria. The plants possess a complex, maternally inheritable syndrome of nucleo-cytoplasmic incompatibility, severely affecting growth,(More)
The Arabidopsis thaliana mutants fus3, lec1 and abi3 have pleiotropic defects during late embryogenesis. Mutant embryos fail to enter the maturation programme and initiate a vegetative germination pathway instead. Screening for genes which are differentially expressed in the fus3 mutant of Arabidopsis resulted in the isolation of several members of the MYB(More)
Fault simulation technology is essential key not only to the validation of test patterns for ICs and SoCs, but also to the analysis of system behavior under fault transient and intermittent faults. For this purpose, we developed a hierarchical fault simulation environment that uses structural VHDL models at the gate level, but is able to model embedded(More)
